San Joaquin Net History
The San Joaquin net was formed April 28, 1959, by K6EJT Bill with a group of amateur radio operators that included:
Al K6RPL, Roger K6HEZ, Alex W6BWM, Fred WA6AFW, Joe W6YQK, Jim K6ZFM, Floyd W6MJS, Verne K6EBO, John W6QRB, Sam K6OBG, Charlie K6SWW and Mike WA6OLG.
They met on 3.915 Kc every night but Sundays and holidays.
Members gave a weather report from their area.
The net increased in members, and changed the name to The San
Joaquin Net. The net has grown to a membership of over seventy
members with Q T H's throughout California.

Is There a San Joaquin HF Net Picnic in Your Future?
Last year we were unable to meet at Roeding Park in Fresno. The City of Fresno is not currently accepting reservations. Because there was some interest in perhaps getting together this year, Larry AD6W, checked into the possibility of meeting in Kingsburg on May 1, 2021. Kingsburg is right off Highway 99 and about 20 miles south of Roeding Park where we have met in past years.
Two parks are available to rent in Kingsburg. Memorial Park is larger and has a reserved covered picnic area with tables, BBQ facilities, water, a horseshoe pit game area, restrooms and a play area for kids. It is located eight-tenths of a mile off of Highway 99 on the corner of Sierra and 18th right across from Kingsburg High School. Parallel parking on the street is suitable for RV parking along two sides. Other events could be going on simultaneously. Larry has tentatively reserved that for us for Saturday, May 1st from 7:00 AM to 3 PM.
The park is near the restored 1875 Historic Kingsburg SP Railroad Depot of which Larry is President! He is up to offering brief tours if anyone is interested. Kingsburg has a clean and quaint main street with lots of restaurants, a very cute old time ice cream parlor, etc.
